October 5, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Actress-singer Demi Lovato was part of the lesson plan at one South Los Angeles school Tuesday.Some third, fourth and fifth graders filed into the Grape Street Elementary School auditorium, thinking they were there for a presentation honoring one of their teachers.

What they didn't know was that they were in for one big surprise.

Lovato performed for the kids as part of the national teacher advocacy program, "A Day Made Better."

For the second year in a row, Grape Street was picked.

The criteria to be chosen is simple: a need for school supplies and teachers spending money out of their own pocket to buy them.

Third grade teacher Beverly Harris was honored this morning.
